Well, as you're saying, not to my recollection. No. So what did happen with the keep to leave that day? The ISO. What led to the ice up, son. Come on now. Let's just do that. And then we'll move it on. No, let's just do that and then we'll move on. We're moving on. We are? Yeah. We're just moving on. Yeah. I'm not gonna like angrily look at you on the move on. I'm a smile. Look at him, look at Steve Schmidt. Back in the day, I would be like, still in there. Okay. To leave a good dude, dude. We've talked. When he was with, he was doing Denver. And he was playing the eagles. Took my son Boston, took him down to see Tori. I was doing the show. I didn't feel he so we watched the game and actually Tori Smith. Yeah, toy Schmidt was with his good people. Great people. And he went and saw him. And I actually have him in my phone, I have a picture of my son, Boston, and to Lee took a picture and so a lot of things that people associate or think that I'm, you know, just the angry black man walking around looking to fight everybody and all of that. I would say about 89% that was pretty factual when I was playing. I did look for I look for, you know, not to have a good day, you know, like some people wake up, you know, they say, some people wake up like, you know, I'm looking forward. I wake up looking for that, right? I had a buddy the other day Texas, hey, good luck on the show. I said, good luck. I just woke up. Well, I'm ready. And so now it's just like using that same energy to express it and show my admiration for all these guys that's playing. So when I come in, you know, in the locker rooms and stuff as analysts, I get them, they tip to a little bit, is he still angry, Steve? And then I'm like, what's up, and they're like, hey. It's the awkward dude, you want to know if it's sunny or cloudy outside. You know what we'll see what it is? Yeah. Well, and plus that line, what was the famous line that NFL films picked up? If you see this face, that means our score. That means you scored. That play where we were playing against Atlanta Falcons. And my family was in the stands in that penalty. Somebody did something penalty. And I was saying words that my kids can read more. Andrew saw me. So shout out to Angie, she kind of pushes me a lot. She's just like, baby, you know, you just got to be a better example for the kids. So shout out to Andy. Do you want to give your wife a spectacular? She is, she deals with me. No matter many, many times. So where does that come from? Where did you just came out of your dome if you see this face? That means I've scored? Yeah. And then I said it, so I had to redo it. So if you see this face, I'm kind of, I don't know, I just sit around and think it's stupid stuff. That's the part I'm just, I'm really kind of silly. I really am. That's great. More people should know that about you. I'm glad I didn't show that earlier on because now it's kind of helped me now later in life. There you go. Also, Steve has quote he's a quote machine and there are websites just devoted to some of the best quotes of your life. I mean, some of these are incredible. The lunch money. I look in the eyes of all my victims before I take their lunch money. I got my lunch somebody taking a few times when I was a kid and I took a few people's lunch money. That's more of a what else.

Congressman Jason Lewis Talks Trump-Hating Republicans
"Explain to me. Again, talk about revisionist history or just changing history. I don't care what you call it. But how can you have, quote, and I'm tired of looking at this, you go on MSNBC, CNN, and sometimes even Fox or in others. And you see these Republican consultants who have not worked for criticized president Trump every day of the week. They criticize Republicans. They, I mean, they work against what is considered, you know, many of us consider conservative, but yet the mainstream media out there is because here's Republican consultants. No, those are not Republicans anymore. Let's at least move them to independent. Let's do something to say, they're not where the Republican voters are today. And if they were, they'd be out there being hired, but they just don't reflect it. That's the part where the media tries to make by using labels. Everybody look the same and that try to isolate those who are pointing out the deficiencies in their argument. It is hard to overestimate the falsity of Steve Schmidt or Rick Wilson ever be considered a Republican. And this whole notion of and this is I'm glad you brought this up because everybody thinks it's Trump's abrasive personality. And let's be honest, it's a different kind of politician. You and I both know that. Not afraid to say that. But different times call for different leaders. But it wasn't that buggy. I mean, oh, he's not humble enough. I think Barack Obama was humbled, Bill Clinton. It was the issues Trump was threatening them with. The end of globalism, the controlling the border, all of these issues that they were advising their Republicans on you. You really ought to come out with a climate platform. You really just need to do that. And don't alienate the Human Rights Campaign by being a traditionalist, you can't do that. And so Trump was threatening that status quo issue wise, and I think that's why they turned on him. That's why they didn't like him. And now from Bill crystal to Schmidt, Wilson, they are venomous in their hatred.
Why Did Meghan McCain Block Todd Starnes on Twitter?
"Chad McCain was a conservative. How dare you? Oh, really? Well, why would he hire a leftist like Steve Schmidt to run his campaign? Steve Steve Schmidt, the founding member of The Lincoln Project, a former McCain campaign manager. Also, a political analyst for MSD and C? That's exhibit a let's talk about exhibit B Nicole Wallace. A former senior campaign adviser, she was the one who handled Sarah Palin. She was the one responsible for literally bludgeoning Palin in the back with a political knife. And what is she doing now? She's one of the lady host on MSD and C. But the real reason she blocked me is because you see, we have a mind like a steel trap. Here at the Todd stern's radio program, ladies. So we don't forget anything here. And that's why she blocked me. You see, misses Dominic, Meghan McCain. Misses Dominick, she blocked me because I reminded the nation about her daddy's most egregious sin. Would he betrayed every single one of us. He had the power in his hands to kill ObamaCare. And while the cameras were rolling on C-SPAN, what did he do? He looked up at that C-SPAN camera, and he put his, he put his hand in the air. With his thumb exposed, and then he did the big thumbs down. A big blank you to America. That's what he did. All I was doing was asking misses Dominic to explain her daddy's political strategy. But you see, this is what the establishment thinks about all of us. You vote for Donald Trump, you're an irredeemable deplorable. You vote for Donald Trump, you're a Neanderthal.

"Well i think the president is is is being somewhat moderate in his demand. If you wanna call it that in that there are some people who really don't want to get vaccinated but they don't wanna lose their job. You gotta give them an off lane and the off lane is if he get tested frequently enough and find out your positive. You won't come to work and you won't infect other people so it really is somewhat of a compromise there myself. I would make it just vaccinate or not but he was trying to be moderate in what his pronouncement wounds in bush. You meet any more evidence. That man is a little fascist. No what evidence we need to provide because after perhaps the most egregious breach of civil rights since the end of the civil war by biden yesterday with the mandating vaccines. she says. it's moderate and didn't go far enough. Let's talk to men. Who i know will have an opinion. My full white house colleague from a special assistant to president trump strategic advisor the trump tweets campaign. We call him barra and boris. Welcome back to america first. Good to be here. And i'm doing a borolia. Wave to celebrate being back. Which i think about we missed the baronial waves. Okay okay. Let's let's talk about this. do you agree with. I mean you're a legal person. You're you're qualified fancy georgetown lawyer. You're not just a political maven. Yesterday has to be one of the worst infringements of our civil rights since habeas corpus was suspended. No absolutely shocking absolutely unacceptable. It is it. Is it honestly something that is beyond the pale to degree which is is is tough to comprehend. Except for the fact that we've got a guy in the oval office who is so out of touch. Who's so fat close. Who is so pathetic to these two in his. He's doing it to cover up for the people he had killed and afghanistan. That is what joe biden is doing. And there's absolutely disgusting. This government overreach is unacceptable. It's got no place. It is sad. It's disjointed but this is today's democrats are that is why i've been saying this to you. Even before last year's election the democrats are becoming the marginal party because they pushed through ideas. Like this tony voucher with his sycophant of of of joe biden is also sad. Of course we always knew. There's just a lib who's set on making sure that the american people lose their livelihoods lose their jobs which he's the one that needs to be fired for lying blatantly lying to the american public about about funding gain of function research in china. We now know that for a fact. How would you still has javed's shocking heist allowed to go on tv shocking but the but the over arching takeaway from this action if even if you could call it an accent from this criminality. Our different joe biden is that he doesn't understand the constitution. Here's an interesting. The american america white actually qualifies off. It is the handlers of joe biden. Who don't understand the constitution the american way and they've got it all wrong in the american people will not back down. They're not going accept this okay. So it's not just found sheets sycophants like biden. I mean this is a big issue. And i wanna understand if this is going to have a positive effect for waking up here. We have from of course the lincoln project. A man called steve schmidt who is just going full literal nutty right now cop. Eight play cuts living wage of misinformation and at age of insanity and a nuff is enough is enough reality reality. And it's time to end the be ass and so. I think that he should approach this with an iron fist. I n fast. That's what that's what that's what we need from biden an eye and face. Is this the man who is supposed to unite task baron. Well steve schmidt has been discredited and in his voice is worth absolutely nothing. They've got they've got bigger problems. At the lincoln project you know with with harboring appear to file in john weaver in their in their mid student. Absolutely nothing about it. The lincoln project is a disgrace. Lincoln project was a joke. At steve schmidt. The former republican is an absolute and utter embarrassment to political operatives. This guy's always been grafter and he can't stop it now choi if you could sink any lower. I'm not sure how much lower could go than being joy in reach show as a turncoat benedict. Arnold republican that's what steve schmidt's as far as joe biden. Anybody that is why right. Track ramtruck polling in economist yougov. She's upside down by over thirty points. Only twenty percent of americans believed that america's in the on the right track under joe biden. Why his political capital is done. His legitimacy is done his credibility as done. It was I think three days ago where the the latest figures are app for cable news and joy reed has less than three hundred thousand viewers. So she has. She has less than ten percent of the listenership. We have here in america. I that's how irrelevant steve. Schmidt is but let me ask you this. Do we look at this positively or do we look at the last few years of the last year and a half and say americans aren't going to react. They gave in to the businesses being closed the schools being closed or could this be the final straw where people say no. I'm not getting vaccinated. I will not comply my business book not comply which of those two scenarios. Do you expect. Boris as what. I'm seeing across the country. What i'm hearing across the country is that americans are not backing down and a big part of it is that joe biden is so disliked is that his capital is so low. Is they see somebody who doesn't have the true respect of the american people. This isn't even the barack obama when he was president. He was at about forty five. Sometimes touching up to the high of forty percent approval rating joe binds real approval ratings in the twenties when he comes out and does this right after having thirteen brave. Young americans killed enough ghanistan. The american people are saying to very simple letters. It's an it's you so you think this could be the moment when americans say they wake up it. Could it be also the independence. What's your read. Could this bring even more supporters to the maga- movement his approval with independence in the low thirties. Dipping into the twenty s. Binz got a huge problem with independence. The democrats have a huge problems independence. I think you're going to see a really major maga- sweep in two thousand twenty two and then as we all hope. President trump does ron. He'll become the forty seventh president of the united states at twenty twenty five inaugurated in january twentieth..

"Is behind the console this morning, Jane Mountain and our producer, You may know the saying it all comes out in the wash. Well, it is all coming out in the wash this weekend for Governor Cuomo in New York. Big problems with the way they counted. Coben death. It's all coming out in the wash. For the Lincoln Project headline at Politico. The Lincoln Project implodes amid infighting and scandal, and it's all coming out in the wash or the Democratic prosecution. In the impeachment trial of former President Trump as the Republican defense team. Those defending the former president yesterday laid out their arguments and they are scheduled for two hours of closing arguments today on each side. And then the likelihood of a vote to take place today. So where do we begin? I would say we begin in New York with Governor Cuomo because this is a story that will be ongoing. Theoretically, the impeachment story will end later today, and that will be in the rear view mirror. But it will be the days, weeks and months ahead as things unfold in this city of New York and the state of New York. Now, what's this all about? You may have heard it. You may not have heard all the details. Well, there was a conference call that the governor's secretary. Melissa Derosa was on. She was speaking on the call. And here's how the New York Post Summed it up in a headline. Cuomo aid Melissa Derosa admits they head nursing home data so feds wouldn't find out Covert 19 deaths in New York nursing homes were 50% higher than claimed. So what happened? There was a video conference call with state Democratic leaders on the call. She said the Cuomo administration had rebuffed a legislative request for the tally in August, because quote right around the same time, then President Trump started tweeting that we killed everyone in nursing homes. She said. Trump directs the Department of Justice to do an investigation into us. And basically, we froze. She goes on, because then we were in a position where we weren't sure if what we're going to give the Department of Justice or what we give to you guys What we start saying was going to be used against us. While we weren't sure if there was going to be an investigation that played a very large roll into this She continued. So we do apologize. I do understand the position that you were put in. I know that's not fair. It was not our intention to put you in that political position with Republicans. She tried to walk that back yesterday. But the cat was out of the bag didn't go over too well with a number of Democrats in New York. Assembly Health Committee Chairman Richard Gottfried, a Democrat from Manhattan, rejected her expression of remorse, He said, quote. I don't have enough time today to explain all the reasons why I don't give that any credit at all. State Senate Aging Committee chairwoman Rachel May, a Democrat from Syracuse, also ripped into two. Rosa said her former opponent had launched another broadside earlier in the day. And the issue for me the biggest issue of always feeling like I needed to defend or at least not attack an administration that was appearing to be covering something up. Well, it got even more interesting. Last night on Tucker Carlson's show, he did an interview with a Democratic City councilman in New York. And I thought this was a Very interesting conversation. This is Richard Holden. Speaking. Last night, he's again a democratic councilman in the city of New York. Well, he's made all the wrong moves so far, and you know, 36,700 people have lost their lives in New York state. He's taking victory laps and he's a self promoter. Hey, because he's lied all the way through. He's covered up so many things, including probably 6, 7000 deaths of seniors hit that he forced into Kobe positive seniors forced into nursing homes and then Wondered why so many people were dying. It spread like wildfire in the nursing homes, and then he denies. He blames everybody else for they lie. And they even admitted that they lied because they were afraid of a lawsuit by the Justice Department for mishandling the nursing home situation. So my God, can you don't I can't believe this guy and such arrogance. On. He goes on his brother's show, each household a great things he's done. What has he done? That's great, except lie to people. He should be investigated and he should be called the tests on this. Jake Tapper at CNN Tweeting yesterday quote. The story keeps getting worse for Andrew Cuomo on covert 19. So that one's coming out in the wash for Governor Cuomo in New York. Now let's turn to the Lincoln Project. We'll go to The New York Times this is, according The New York Times article. The crisis engulfing the anti Trump group. The Lincoln Project deepened on Friday when Steve Schmidt, a co founder, resigned abruptly from the board and former employees renewed demands to be released from non disclosure agreements. In order to provide more information about the organization's handling of harassment allegations against another co founder, John Weaver. Further controversy erupted late Thursday night when the Lincoln Project posted Screenshots from Jennifer Horns, Twitter account, revealing her direct messages with a reporter and then quickly took them down. Unauthorized access of a social media account can be illegal, depending on the circumstances. You're familiar with the Lincoln Project. You've seen the commercials. Uh, very divisive commercials attack ads that were used against President Trump at the time during the campaign since the campaign, they've continued with attacks on Josh Holly. Ted Cruz and Senator Lindsey Graham, among others. Now where the story gets even more interesting is since it This is The Associated Press report. Since its creation, the Lincoln Project has raised $90 million, but only about a third of the money roughly $27 million directly paid for advertisements that aired on broadcast and cable. Or appeared online during the 2020 campaign, so they've raised $90 Million.27 million goes into advertisements now continuing with the AP story quote. That leaves tens of millions of dollars that went toward expenses like production costs overhead and exorbitant consulting fees collected by members of the group. The vast majority of the cash was split among consulting firms controlled by its founders, including about $27 million paid to a small firm controlled by one member. And another $21 million paid to a boutique firm run by former Lincoln Project member Ron Step, slow that, according to campaign finance disclosures. Stuart Stevens is the senior adviser to the Lincoln Project. He tweeted last week. We're constructing a database of Trump officials and staff that will detail their roles in the Trump administration and track where they are now. No personal info on Lee professional, but they will be held accountable and not allowed to pretend they were not involved. Well, now the members of the Lincoln Project will be held accountable and not allowed to pretend they were not involved. 60 minutes did a glowing segment on the Lincoln Project last year.

They were not asked about the allegations once during any Of these interviews. Now Ryan guard dusky who we share with you. A tweet earlier said that they did know the members did. No young men approached them about the accusations. Members knew I was writing the story and warn, jarred John Weaver about it. So, the New York Times writer said They knew about it even though MSNBC didn't ask him So now. What's next? Well, they gotta change names. They can't they can't run around with Lincoln Project.

Don't need a podcast from a bunch of people that have already been corrupted by The deep state. The establishment. What have you The big picture? Well, it comes amid transition and crisis for the Lincoln Project, a hugely successful anti trump advocacy group. They are successful because they got a bunch of rich left wingers to give them money. They are not richly successful in the marketplace and see this is folks. This is such an important distinction. In the marketplace. They're not successful.

I'm much older than I look, I'm 33. I look like I'm in my probably my mid twenties according to some people, so they assumed that I was going to be preyed on by John Weaver.

Mr. Lynch, who had received both doses of the Fizer of vaccine was tested for the virus after a staff member in his Boston office tested positive earlier this week. The congressman received his positive test on Friday afternoon. Lynch's office said that he he did continue to follow. Overdid 19 safety protocols such a social, social distancing and wearing a mask even after receiving the vaccine. A statement from Fizer says it could take up seven days for protection from the second dose to kick in. However, the statement from Lynch's office said the congressman received the second dose vaccine before attending President Biden's inauguration on January 20th. Nine days before his positive test so but again, we would remind you that Fizer says our vaccine is what night I think is 95% so And he could have.

They're the ones who go on television a lot, and they raised well over $75 million from very gullible donors. Tol attacked Trump. They've paid their own firms millions upon millions dollars. I believe it is. Steve Schmidt was paid over 1.5 always pay exactly $1.5 million for one month's work between November and December After the presidential election, he was already a $1.5 million For one month of work. They raised millions and millions of dollars to attack Trump and all Republicans. They were raised by millions against Susan Collins millions against Thom Tillis. I mean, it's not just trumpets, all Republicans Now Who are they raising before we get to your article, which is I think we could describe as As um Salacious in the content where we're talking about here with this guy. Who are they raising because people say that the raising some of it from left wing donors, so it's kind of a false, flag style project where they're pretending to be one thing, but they're actually getting money from the left. But are are they're conservative donors. We're giving the Lincoln Project money or Republican donors were given your project money Republicans who are like the Cindy McCain Republicans were just repulsed by Trump's behavior, so they give him money. It's I mean, who gives two campaigns? Who is the path? I mean, most of our most. You'll have Johnny a lot.

Steve Schmidt, MSNBC, Katie Torrey, NBC Whole bunch of people out there from NBC. Weighing in on my Call for violence supposedly Rush Limbaugh standing by the president. After what we saw yesterday, Rush Limbaugh today, talking about that he was offended that there have been calls to end the violence. Rush Limbaugh is on his radio show talking about violence, saying that there's a lot of people calling for the end of the violence. But he says I'm glad Sam Adams Thomas pay the actual tea party guys. The men of Lexington and Concord did not feel that way. So not turning down the heat. Rush Limbaugh to citing the revolution and the like. You need to read a book on the Revolution. Rush Limbaugh is trying to prevent as much violence and get as many people heard. It's possible and he's glad that the American revolutionaries resorted to violence man the degree of ignorance what I said. Woz. Did not require a decoder. It did not require a special frequency to get the real words that I said Turn on the radio was free. Isabel, turn on my website and streaming It was no mystery. This last guy was think younger Rush Limbaugh trying to foment as much violence. Get his many people hurt as possible. He's glad the American revolutionaries re sorted in violence. They had no choice by the way, Mr Yoga but I made no such comparisons. I simply pointed out At the American revolutionaries did not have this. This'll, this'll self defeating. Policy. Of tying their hands behind their backs. Because their opponents demanded it. Here is what I actually said. In context. After warning everybody how precariously balanced. The program was yesterday that I knew they were out there just waving for one wrong word. I knew they think they would find it in anything that I said. But here is the whole thing. It takes 41 seconds and the mother of all ironies. The Democrats in the media are calling yesterday's protests and bloody coup attempt, even though the only blood spilled was that of an unarmed trump supporter who was shot an unarmed white woman who was an Air Force veteran who had done four tours of duty in the Middle East, defending the right to protest. We're supposed to be horrified by the protesters, meanwhile, four years Have a cool launched in the Oval Office of Barack Obama to overturn the election results of 2016 and not a single word of concern about the potential damage to our constitution. No, there were just other denials. We didn't do it. I know what you're talking about. Trump's gotta go Trump's poison. So yeah, There's a lot of ironing out there and there's a lot of people calling for the end of violence with lot of conservatives, social media who say that any violence or aggression All is unacceptable, regardless of the circumstances. I'm glad Sam Adams, Thomas Paine, the actual tea party guys the minute Lexington and Concord didn't feel that way. At no time. Did I compare anybody participating in the capital protest? The Sam Adams, Thomas Paine, the actual tea party, guys the minute Lexington and Concord. They think I did, or they are lying about the fact that I did. Lot of people calling for the end of violence Lot of conservative social media Say that any violence or aggression at all is unacceptable. Well as I mentioned 28, different times, Media and Democrats excused or endorsed violence committed by left wing activists just last summer. One of them was Kamila Harris. June 2020. After rioting have destroyed property businesses and killed people in several cities. Senator Kami Harris went on the late show, she said. Quote They're not going to stop. Of the protest. This is a movement They're not going to stop before Election Day in November, and they're not going to stop after Election day, she continued. Everybody should take note of that on both levels that they're not going to let up. They should not, and we should not let up on the violence. Harrison that protests must continue in order to make a difference. The only way we're going to truly achieve change. Is when there are people in the system who are willing or pushing to do it. And when there are those folks outside of the system, demanding it So we have Trump, who told demonstrators yesterday afternoon to stop any violence. He told them to go home. He told him to go home in peace. He said, Yeah, your election was stolen from you. But it's time now to go home. Go home in peace. We have the vice president elect Kami Harris. May well be our president sooner than you can shake a stick. Encouraging the continuation of the rioting. In June of last year, promoting it, advocating it saluting it.

You know, in the 2016 campaign, I campaign for almost everybody not named Donald Trump. And it became pretty clear that the RNC is a structure was, you know, akin to a fueled up 7 47 sitting on a runway. That could be hijacked by almost anybody with a big brand, and that's what happened and I've made it pretty clear that I think it's pretty dangerous for the party of Lincoln and Reagan. Um, to become a party of You know a lot of Q and on nonsense and a lot of TV obsession and a lot of narcissistic trolling. Our party needs to be bigger than one personality. And I hope that the Republican National Committee is thinking hard. About how we serve our kids by trying to put forward an argument that can speak to 70%. And frankly, that could speak to 90% of America. And right now, we don't do that. I mean, you know you want to clean up your job. You want a clean sweep of the RNC? You know, the RNC doesn't ask my advice on how to govern the place there. There is a lot of Yes, man. And yes, woman is, um inside the RNC. It's It's not a place. That's primarily about ideas. Right now. It's been a cult of personality for some time, and they don't they don't ask my advice. S so I'm not going to comment on a specific election there, But I think the RNC needs to have lots and lots of change. We need to be making a case where we want to be the party of gratitude, not the party of grievance. America isn't a tribal war forever. And if you listen to most of the crap that comes out of the RNC, these are a bunch of people obsessed with whatever some random Democrats said that day and they want to scream about it. But if I can, senator, I want to move to the other end of the spectrum. Steve Schmidt, who is the leader of the Lincoln Project, has planned quote a brutal campaign. Against Companies Trade Association CEO Is that quote service financiers of the authoritarian movement that attacked the U. S Capitol. It's a time for choosing it's America or autocracy. There's going to be a public discussion about it course. Steven Schmidt of the McCain campaign has selected Sarah Palin to be his vice president. What do you make of the Lincoln projects? Sort of Anti Trump is, um, Is that opportunism? Or is it principal? I think there's an insane amount of money that's been made by people wandering Republican or formerly Republican brands to raise money from Democrats and four democratic causes. So I don't spend a lot of time on the lake and project But I think I think a lot of the work they've done is very, very sad, very destructive. But again, I think the more important thing that me complaining about the Lincoln Project is talking about the party of Lincoln and who we wanna be. America doesn't work. If we're gonna hate each other. America can't do big things. If we just talk about how much we hate each other on the third or fourth most conservative member of the Senate by policy voting record, But I'm just not that partisan because I care more about my neighbors that I care about people in D. C, who live on Social media. Attack the other party. It's not. It's not very many of Americans who really care about that crap. People think it was a cliche. When I quoted Lincoln, we must not be enemies. We must be friends. We must not be enemies. But and that's not cliche. It's not cliche people people call call me naive for saying I'm still optimistic about America. Fine. Call me naive politics has enough cynics. At the end of this rock. We gotta love our neighbor. I mean, the point of America is about coming together to reaffirm a constitutional system. Why is the constitution? The end? No, The Constitution is a means It's Washington Silver frame. To get to the golden apple at the middle, which is the communities where we work and where we raise kids and where we worship and where we love. Which is where you where you built that which is freedom from so that freedom to government gets this freedom from government isn't the end. Government gets us freedom from so we can get to freedom to actually build crap with the people..
Lawmaker quits GOP over bid to overturn Biden's win
"The political world has a new independent tonight because earlier. Today republican congressman. Paul mitchell of michigan decided to leave his republican party over trump's efforts to cast doubt on the election. It became clear to me that i could no longer be associated with the republican party. That leadership does not stand up and say the process. The election is over. It's over today. I voted for donald trump. i supported the administration policies. Ninety five ninety six percent of the time the last two terms. I've active in the national state party but this party has to stand up for democracy. I for our constitution. I am not clinical considerations. that's a candidate. Not simply for raw political power. And that's what feels going on. And i've had enough back with us tonight. Robert gibbs former obama campaign senior adviser former white house press secretary under one president obama and steve schmidt longtime political strategist who led the mccain campaign. Who has since left the republican party and among the founders of the lincoln project which set out to defeat trump and trumpism and steve. That's why i'm going to start with you What have they unleashed. I've got a poll to show you fox news poll. Seventy seven percent of trump voters. Feel that the election was stolen from their guy. Then this weekend at a maga- rally in washington a chance starts up. Destroy the gop. What have they uncorked here. How will anyone fix this. And is a guy like mitch mcconnell ready for the consequences. Well let me just say brian. That several years ago a book came out and it was name j winning and he posited that april eighteen sixty five one of the most important historical monse in history. And i think when we look back november. Twenty twenty is going to be such a monte it's a before and after monte hinge in our history and it was the month where faith and belief in american democracy was deliberately premeditatively intentionally poisoned by donald trump by his supporters including many elected republicans in culminating with one hundred twenty six members of congress in eighteen attorney general's signing in a meekest brief. Now it's important to understand that signing got a meek brief was not illegal lack the junk lawsuits. It was preposterous. It was a political statement. It was a repudiation of be bedrock of the american system the idea that a government of the people by the people for the people. The people are sovereign. The people decide who our leaders are in their in tampa to maintain empower defeated in common president over the clear in legitimate. Victor is something that will do to american democracy. What the exxon valdez. Day to alaskan waters deepwater horizon did gulf waters it poisons that fundamental faith and belief which the system can't survive without and then lastly resolved in washington dc. We saw right wing extremist violence with these proud boys. And just because they weren't wearing brown or black doesn't mean that they're not the same people that you saw at nineteen thirty five or nineteen. Twenty seven in italy or in germany is a fascistic organisation. Trying to impose violence political will on the country. We're in a lot of trouble as country after this month of november. And we're going to be fighting this fight for generation and this is the month where american politics relying on one side a pro democracy coalition and on the other side we have an autocratic coalition within that autocratic coalition for example in the house. You have a conservative leader liz. Cheney and you have an autocratic leader kevin mccarthy in the same way that the kansas nebraska wrote the whig party in eighteen fifty four and led to the emergence of a new party. The republican party. I suspect that what we've seen play out over these last weeks with these members signing onto this in time we'll break the republican party into its conservative faction faction but either way we have one institution politically in. This country stands for the ideals of american democracy. And that's the democratic party. You'll political party in the world while you've given us a lot about their can sure on your assessment of april eighteen sixty five the book by jay winnick which i love to and his on my bookshelf. Hey robert think of the senators as i like to call them in the witness protection program. The lamar's the blunts especially the portman. Monds they insist on being upstanding republicans all of them to a man have taken a dive for this president and have sold out their seats and votes. When it's come down to it. How are they going to react. When perhaps as the ultimate extension of trumpism these chance startup about destroying the gop. They didn't make that bargain. They just went along. With a a president occult. They were scared of getting tweeted out. Who doesn't understand that They didn't go along with destroying the party. that got them to the dance will. They didn't brian. But i think they cut a deal essentially with trump and bought something they may not be able to now return Because this is going to land on them. How are they going to sit across from a president. That a seventy seven percent of their own party believes is illegitimate and try to govern the country. It has to start brian with not just a recognition of what happened today at the electoral college. But why and how it happened because of an honest free and fair election fifty some court cases which heard wild accusations about fraud that never got proven and election that delivered a president elected vice president-elect and if they don't begin to explain that to their own voters that this wasn't just a happenstance on a calendar for the electoral college but in fact a result of an election that was had in this country been. They too are going to be able to govern the the idea that this is just making joe biden less and less of a legitimate president and that they own or quite frankly aren't going to feel the effects of this on them. I think you're beginning to see it whether it's chance that you saw in washington whether it's the questions that the senators that are up for re election in georgia are getting they go to these rallies. They pitch their candidacy for a vote. And then somebody says what. Are you doing to protect democracy for the presidential campaign and if they don't start to let the air out of that balloon in a real way. Nobody's gonna come vote for them and january because nobody's going to have confidence in the system even their own base.
NBC/WSJ poll: Support for Biden has almost doubled
"NBC News Wall, Street Journal poll released yesterday, and support. For Joe Biden has almost doubled after just last week's debate the poll taken before trump announced he had covid nineteen has biden by fourteen, fifty, three to forty nine still with us our professionals. Steve Schmidt, Robert Gibbs Robert I am duty-bound to point out I think Hillary Clinton on this date in two thousand sixteen was ahead by exactly fourteen points with that in mind. What would your charge to your fellow Democrats be? Well I would. I would ignore the polls. And go full steam ahead on what you have to do to win this race next continue to assure the American people. That you're capable and that you've got a plan for implementing that. The. Change that you need to see in the White House but I think Lewis startling about that poll. This race has been remarkably stable Brian it's been stable for a really long time regardless of all that gets thrown at it, and so the NBC NBC eight previous polls, the average margin was Biden by eight percent in February it was Biden by eight percent in September. It was Biden by eight percent now it's fourteen. The American people got a good hard look at Donald Trump in that debate and they liked absolutely nothing of what they saw I don't think Joe Biden is going to win this race by fourteen points. The one of the last moments Donald Trump had available to him to begin to change the trajectory of this race in his favour not only did he miss that opportunity, but he actually handed a significant amount of support with now just four weeks left in this race to his opponent Joe. Biden. Mister Gibbs makes a great point Mr Schmidt and let's go further on. Politics. Steve Mitch McConnell is seventy eight. He is a polio survivor he is scared to. Of Covert nineteen by all available evidence politically, he is scared to death of not pushing through the third Supreme Court nominee what's going to happen? Do you think in the US Senate three Republican members down with positive diagnoses? Well look specifically when it comes to stopping a Supreme Court Nomination Brian you have to think about it like trying to rob a train before you can get to the safe with the gold on it on the train to derail the train you have to slow it down you have to be able to get on the train and so what the Democrats have to do is not be focused on delaying the hearings pass the election they need to be focused on delaying the hearings for the first day they need to push it back one day, and then once you can push it back one day you can. Get the second day, but the reality is is it'd be very difficult for the Senate to hold onto the time line because total recklessness of so many of these senators and of course, trump at the trump administration and all of the chaos that we're seeing play out over over this weekend, and then elect Wurley for the Senate I. Mean This is just a disaster I. Think Certainly Mitch McConnell understands. He's on the precipice of losing his Senate majority. It's almost a certainty that he will. It may be a wipeout. You see for example, Mike spn Mississippi Mike espy is in a very close race now you see. The Kansas Senate race, the Democratic candidate is points up there. So the it seems like the walls are collapsing on all of this. This was a terrible terrible week for trump and for all the trump of batters, enablers and accomplices in the United States Senate I, mean, it started with the with the debate and it got worse from there the. Senior leadership of the campaign scandalized there is a mutant in the campaign on Friday night. PEOPLE DON'T WANNA show up to work too terrified to go into the White House profound mistrust of their leadership, and then there's reports out tonight from the incomparable Gabe Sherman for example, a Vanity Fair talking about the divide in the family looking at how crazy trump's behaviors been. Over the course it is last weekend with Donald Trump junior apparently talent people that they have to try to rain man knowing what a disaster this is. So my view is this is all coming down the Walzer collapsing we're seeing that play out everything we're seeing trump do is from a position of weakness and the idea now that he's going to be able to. CAST himself as some type of hero for having defeated cove at I think is. A ludicrous delusion on the part of him Sean Hannity and his
Trump and his physician deny he had "mini-strokes"
"Into the mini stroke. Situation. And as I was recounting before we took the top of the hour break, I was prompting you to remember last fall. When the president had this little Walter Reed excursion. It was unannounced and remember. That Trump's White House physician, Dr Sean Conley, He hustled the president into a limo and rode with him to the hospital. Remember that? The one house said at the time that the weekend visit was to begin his routine annual exam. But there was another break from protocol because nobody at Walter Reed was advised that the president was coming and it wasn't on. Trump's schedule, typically any type of visit. It's on the schedule. The press is alerted, sometimes even a day in advance. And then nobody. Walter Reed knew the president was coming. So that added to the intrigue added to the mystery. White House pool reporters said that they were told that Trump's movements that Saturday was strictly One reportable. Quickly on reportable. Until he arrived at the hospital, so they weren't supposed to report anything until he got to the hospital. That was a 2 47 PM now despite the irregularities in the White House press office, they released a statement afterward. Saying that Trump was merely taking advantage of a free weekend here in Washington to start his physical because he's anticipating a very busy 2020. Right. That's what the White House said fast forward. And we have a new book coming out. By Michael Schmidt. Of the New York types, not not Schmidt. But Schmidt. And that's a C H m i d t. And of course I'm s C h and I t t. And in this book, this Schmidt Dude reports that Vice President Mike Pence. Was told to be on standby to assume. Presidential powers during Trump's Rather abrupt visit toe. Walter Reed and Schmidt writes, quote this from the book. In the hours leading up to Trump's trip to the hospital. Word went out in the West Wing for the vice president to be ready to be on standby to take over the powers of the presidency temporarily if Trump had to undergo a procedure. That would have required him to be anesthetized. Now, clearly if you just want to take advantage of getting a jump on your Physical. I don't see a need that the V P would have to be notified that he could be assuming powers. And why the hell would you have to be a anesthetized if you just pop it so things that didn't add up And now you have this passage from the book? And is this true or is this false? Based on what we know of the book at this point. Schmidt doesn't speculate. What procedure could have been under consideration. So if this is accurate, what the hell could have been going on? What could trump have been? So potentially under the need for anesthesia in what would potentially put Mike Pence. In the in the chair. A Zach Ting president while the president was under, for instance. What, So we don't know? We also don't know what his sourcing for the information about the hospital visit is But here's where it gets a little bit weird. That mortar the story your folks It's a little strange here. The response for President Trump. This morning. He denied suffering a Siri's of many strokes. And it's strange. Strange here. It's It's odd because Steve Schmidt or Ah, sorry, Michael Schmidt, rather Michael Schmidt in the book. Hey. Never stated that Trump had suffered any small or many Schroecksnadel. So here's the president denying that he suffered a Siri's of many strokes. Based on the details of this book coming out and the trip to Walter Reed, but No. Where did this Michael Schmidt bring up? Many strokes. Or TIA, or whatever. So Schmitz book doesn't get specific. But Trump did get specific. And this is what the president tweeted out this morning. It never ends. Now They're trying to say that your favorite president me went toe Walter Reed Medical Center, having suffered a Siri's of many strokes. Never happened to this candidate. Fake news. Perhaps they're referring to another candidate from another party exclamation point. I just thought why did President Trump bring up? Many stroke when the reporter and the author of the book doesn't make any mention Of a stroke or even suggesting anything close. So that's where the story gets a little odd that an hour later, Schmidt responded to the president in a tweet of his own and he wrote Book says nothing about many strokes.
Strategist Steve Schmidt Discusses Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump
"Do you think that Bernie Sanders is the biggest threat to your president trump? Right now I do think so I would say that the biggest threat to president trump is president trump. What do you mean by that? Well if he's on his game as he was at the state of the Union there's a candidate in the country that can beat them if there is a second choice of than himself it would be Bernie Sanders Bernie. Sanders brings out outside game in a similar fashion. That president trump did in two thousand sixteen interesting moment there with Tim. Scott of South Carolina Senator Bernie Sanders coming off a big win in Nevada. And on Saturday we will come to what is only. Let's remember the second primary of the political season. Let's talk about the state of our politics with us. Now Steve Schmidt a veteran former Republican strategist us since left the Republican Party. But he's here with US tonight. That's all we care about. Let's take them one at a time. Let's start with the Republicans. Start WITH SENATOR. Scott's point the biggest risk to donald trump is donald trump because we just had shannon petty peace with with a straight face as a reporter. Say It's another one of these crises corona virus. That trump didn't start himself. Well Look Tim. Scott is correct. I mean the person that is always created the most powerful for Donald trump politically is is donald trump but since his acquittal by the Senate as he's purging the government of anybody he thinks is disloyal as he is taking his revenge is he is a visceral rating the rule of law in unprecedented fashion. Interfering in criminal cases the Department of Justice his poll numbers are going up and so he is consolidating power at an alarming rate in doing so liberally. Let's talk about the Democrats and as we do. I WanNa play the Clip Bernie. Sanders campaign manager. Came on with Chris Hayes earlier on this network tonight. We'll look at that one of the reasons that I love and fight for Bernie Sanders. There's integrity and honesty. You get with him and what that means is when you ask them a direct question he gives you a direct response comes from his heart from his soul. Tells you exactly what he's thinking right and that means that sometimes you may disagree with his perspective but you know he's he's shooting straight with. He's not playing a political game. So when you ask them about. Hey how about Cuba and the Castro? Oh well he's an authoritarian. He's engaged in human rights abuses however there were some good things that happened in Cuba. We should acknowledge those two. And that's an honest answer and then other people will play political games. And that's why for instance Chris. I think over the course of this campaign. We've benefited from the fact that his stray shooting his integrity. His honesty rises above other people's efforts to try to offer political barbs and try to throw cheap shots in the kitchen sink at him that were tonight and at a CNN town hall and the last hour people to judge just said in effect here. We are as a party. We're talking about Fidel Castro. Indeed and they are and you look at travesty of a debate if you're in the business of wanting to remove Donald Trump from office. The one thing that wasn't talked at all about in that debate was trump or trumpism and so the campaign managers talking about Bernie Sanders Integrity. Is he showing integrity by not releasing his medical records? Is he showing transparency and integrity by not talking about the Price Tag associated with student? Loan Forgiveness Free Pre pre K. daycare for everybody. And there's no price tags on any of this. It's a dishonest progressivism. That's NO DIFFERENT THAN DONALD. Trump's dishonesty talking about the Mexican paid for wall it's all fantasy and so when Bernie Sanders goes out there. He starts talking about well. Here's the good sides of Fidel Castro. I think it's important to understand that there might be a constituency for that in this country but it's a really small one and it's certainly not enough to get you into an electoral college majority to win the White House. And it certainly dooms your chances in Florida. How do you process the fact that tomorrow night? We're going to have seven people on stage. Two of them are billionaires. Two of them look at real double digit poll numbers knowing that money bought those poll numbers not some inner need to have them as our next president. How do we process that well? I think they're two different cases right so first off. Mike Bloomberg was the mayor of New York City for twelve years and by any objective standard. He was one of the most competent successful leaders of large government anywhere in the world over the last quarter century. He was a profoundly successful mayor. I think it's a mistake for Democrats to attack. Somebody like Mike. Bloomberg who grew up in a middle-class circumstance and is a self made man is one of the country's greatest philanthropists and I disagree with him on a number of different issues but if you are invested in progressive causes. It's hard for me to think of anybody who has done more to advance progressivism whether it's on gun issues whether it's on climate then has Mike Bloomberg so the notion that Mike Bloomberg is on that stage somehow illegitimately is not something that I really understand. Tom Steyer has been an activist in American politics. Now for some period of years he has communicated a message. He's gotten the requisite poll numbers to be on the stage. The question will be after the South Carolina primaries. If you have eight moderate Democrats all of whom might have a greater chance of beating Donald Trump and does Bernie Sanders? Will some of those candidates get out of the race to help coalesce support around the strongest? Moderate candidate? Poor the issue right now in the Democratic primaries you cannot make an objective judgement and say Bernie Sanders is going to go down to Donald Trump in the swing states on the basis of poll numbers because the poll numbers. Don't support that in those states. But when you look at Bernie Sanders positions that we should criminalize illegal immigration. That we're going to take health insurance away from one hundred fifty million people who have private health insurance a of other issues the type of rhetoric that you saw him use on sixty minutes talking about Castro. All of these issues come together. In a way that I think objectively with James Carville said is disqualifying for somebody running for president in somebody. Who'S LIKELY TO LOSE TO DONALD TRUMP and I think that's what you're saying. A lot of panic in the democratic electorate in the democratic officeholder class in these days really focused on Steve Schmidt always a pleasure. Thank you for
